Mujeres Empresarias Group's story

Thamy is 32 years old, single and has two children who depend on her. She has been a client of Edaprospo for four years, and she has been selling glasses and cosmetics for approximately three years.

She started with the idea of increasing her income and, at the same time, improving her quality of life. With her effort and work she managed to build her home and she has been able to educate her two young children. Currently, she uses her income to cover all the household expenses, since she is the only person supporting her home. Her plan for the future is to buy a car to distribute her products.

Thamy used the loan to buy merchandise for her business, because at this time her sales tend to increase because of the National Holidays. She belongs to the communal bank "Mujeres Empresarias", which consists of ten people and she has held the position of president for four months.

In this group: Hilda, Gloria Gilberta, Thamy Flor, Emiliana, Isabel, Paula*, Edith Roxana, Albina Alfonsa, Percy, Elvira
